I enjoy eating lunch here a couple times a year. The food is comfort food, the fries are always nice and crispy. The reason I don't eat here more often is that it is consistently slow. Lunch is an hour minimum, do not recommend if...More

This is a comfortable, neighborhood restaurant with a standard menu and "specials" that are truly amazing. Don' be put off by the unassuming outside and inside appearance. The wait staff quickly attended and welcomed us. Regular locals enjoyed happy hour at the bar. My husband...More

Although I don't think it's on the menu, someone recommended I have the buffalo chicken mac and cheese and it was to die for! I've had their sausage sandwich special as well and it was good. It is a bit dark in the restaurant and...More

After touring Celestial Seasonings we were looking for some place close for lunch. Saw this on Trip advisor and the menu had some good choices for a non-meat eater. Seems kind of out of the way but near a lot of businesses and was really...More

Had high expectation for "The Veggie" sandwich...grilled portabella, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, cheese, pesto, field greens on a sesame bun. In my mind I envisioned a full portabella - there were a few slices. I envisioned all the veggies piled on the bun - there...More
